Hi everyone, I am wondering if anyone here could help me at all.
I have a strange problem when eaating spagetti bol.
Basically what seems to happen is that it just sits in my tummy for about 6-8 hours until i am sick.
It is not the meat/sauce as i have eaten it without the pasta and it is OK. It seems to be the pasta. When i have even a little it makes me feel ill and a whole portion makes me sick.
It does not happen with Lasange, but i think it will be because there is less pasta in it.
I have no problem eating other glutin based foods as far as i know... i can eat bread till it comes out my ear with no issue.
I seem to be able to eat pasta covered in tuna / sweetcorn with a bit of mayo, again no issue, well certinaly not sickness.
Could it be the degree the pasta is cooked to? a couple of bits last night tasted underdone, where as when my g/f makes tuna pasta, the pasta is boiled to death?
Anyone any ideas?

Hi and welcome. I don't know your health history but it can be possible that your stomach just can't break down undercooked pasta. This happens to my hubby sometimes too, it just sits with him like a lead weight. So I cook the pasta until it's almost mush and it seems to be better for him. Sometimes if you cook spagetti too long it loses it's flavor but I found that Barilla doesn't even when it's overcooked. All I can suggest is try it and see if it works.
